6 Excellent Books You Can enjoy in an Afternoon

1.Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

Keyes’s story is the prime example of short but powerful. This study of the human condition is about Charlie Gordon, a mentally unstable man, who undergoes surgery to increase his intelligence and mental abilities. Somehow so short of a story (only 23 pages) has such a profound effect; few can finish it without shedding some tears. Note- this is the story version, not the novel!

2.The Giver by Lois Lowry

 

The Giver is many people’s first experience with a dystopian novel. Through the perspective of Jonas, the new Receiver of Memory, we see a world without pain or suffering. It also lacks emotional depth. Through the memories of the old receiver, Jonas is exposed to a time where emotions and landscape were unique and, at times, painful. Jonas is then determined to break free from this world of uniformity.
